Disney+ is coming to local PlayStation consoles, but only PS5

Disney+ is coming to local PlayStation consoles, but only PS5

  • When Disney+ launched in South Africa earlier this year, one of the platforms where the streaming app was missing was game consoles.
  • After months of waiting, those with Xbox consoles got access at the end of September.
  • Now it’s finally PS5 console owners’ turn, with the app available for download.

Ever since Disney+ launched in South Africa, local gamers have been trying to access the streaming platform through their consoles. Xbox owners were the first to get an app, and it arrived during Comic Con Africa 2022 in late September.

At the time, PlayStation console owners were left in the lurch, but now access is available with the Disney+ South Africa Twitter account confirms as much this morning. However, there is a caveat that it is only available to those with PS5 at the time of writing.

“Today, Disney+, the streaming service from The Walt Disney Company, announced that the streaming app will be available on PlayStation 5 consoles starting December 6, 2022 in South Africa,” PlayStation South Africa noted in a press release sent to Hypertext.

“With over 1,000 movies, more than 1,500 series and a lineup of 200 exclusive originals from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic and more, Disney+ offers fans the best stories, all in one place, and the next few months are set to be full of entertainment,” it added.

We checked the media marketplace for our own PS5, which is with Hypertext on long-term review from a local distributor, and the app is indeed available to download and start streaming.

Accessing the app requires the use of a One Time Pin (OTP) sent to the phone number associated with the account holder, but luckily it doesn’t require this every time you access the app, which is the case on tablets and smartphones.

Users will have access to high-quality viewing up to 4K, up to four simultaneous streams, unlimited downloads on up to ten devices and the ability to set up up to seven different profiles, including the ability for parents to set a PIN to access age-appropriate content,” the release concludes.

Hopefully the streaming experience will be better on console than it has been on other platforms to date.

We’re also awaiting word on when PS4 consoles will be added to the mix.
